The Rasmei Kampuchea reported on 24 December that members of parliament have critical roles to address issues as a result of world population growth. About 20 Members of Parliament met at a workshop on “Population Dynamics, Family Planning and Implications in a world of 7 billion people” in the afternoon of 22 Dec at the National Assembly Palace. The objective of the workshop was to provide updated information on Cambodian people and challenges in a world of 7 billion people and to encourage them to have better policies for Cambodians. Dr. Marc Derveeuw, UNFPA Representative, highlighted the linkage between demography and implications. Key implications from the population growth include poverty, food security, migration for employment opportunity, urbanization, environment (climate change), health services, nutrition, gender, youth, reproductive health and rights, HIV/AIDS, fertility and family planning.
